A Fast Sweeping Method for Eikonal Equations on Implicit Surfaces


Eikonal equation is a fundamental nonlinear PDE that find vast applications. One particular example is to compute geodesic distance on a curved surface through solving an eikonal equation defined on the surface (surface eikonal equations). However, there are only very few literatures on solving surface eikonal equations numerically, due to the complication from the surface geometry. In this talk, we present a simple and efficient numerical algorithm to solve surface eikonal equations on general implicit surfaces.
